Spline in Compression Methods for Singularly Perturbed 1D Parabolic Equations with Singular Coefficients


In this article, we discuss three difference schemes; for the numerical solution of singularity perturbed 1-D parabolic equations with singular coefficients using spline in compression. The proposed methods are of accurate and applicable to problems in both cases singular and non-singular. Stability theory of a proposed method has been discussed and numerical examples have been given in support of the theoretical results.
